udon

Mine is actually rather simple. Classic style with Japanese Soy Sauce, dash of mirin to bring the flavour up and its done within 4 minutes. Then Put 1 Onsen Egg into it. Perfect! Classic yet simple. If you cook it around 4 minutes, then its kind a perfect with bouncy texture. More than 6minutes you will be stretching it but again depends on texture of your own liking. You like it soft or hard.kanika udonoctopus sushiNext of course you can turn it into Sushi, The simplest form with my favourite Octopus. Sauce and its texture will never go wrong.

kanika seasame saucesesame salad

Kanika Sesame Sauce actually can do a few dishes out. One of the simplest is with greens. Salad and Seasame Sauce will never go wrong as the sauce its fragrant enough and do not put too much into your salad. Will be overpowering. Start off with little then add on more if you find it lacking.. Another is to put it into Udon? There are few recipes online with Sesame Udon Recipe which is kinda interesting.

Milo Maggie Soup Recipe:
cook as usual and I just add in 2 table spoon of Milo Powder. By doing “agak-agak” belive this is sufficient not to over power the noodle soup base.

Give it a try, I am sure you guys will be suprise by it. Sweet, savory with hint of spicyness of maggie powder. Indeed it is better than what I imagine!
